HAFTR Early Childhood celebrated Lag BaOmer on Thursday and Friday. They had a fun gym program with Morah Naomi Weissler on Thursday in honor of the chag. The children learned about Rabbi Akiva, who taught us to treat our friends the way we want them to treat us. This is quite a big lesson for little children to learn, but their amazing moros help them practice every day by speaking about sharing and being the best friend that we can be to others.
For the Lag BaOmer festivities, the classes made a tasty version of s’mores at their “authentic” bonfires and enjoyed delicious fruit salads. They really had a fantastic time watching how many colors they could get into their giant bowl and the result was a tasty treat for all!
